Odd focusing issue with D60

    Recently I've been noticing focusing issues with my D60 while using the
    Canon L lens range. Certainly this lens seems more sensitive than the old
    Sigma I used to use, but somehow even when the middle focussing square
    lights up, its a hit and miss affair as to whether my subject will be as
    sharp as the lens allows, or even sharp at all in some cases!

    Is this a documented issue or have I got faulty gear?

    That Sigma may have tainted your gear. :)

    Perhaps, though I did take some wonderfully sharp photos with that trusty
    lens!

    A weird thing I noticed tonight as well, my much cheaper Canon lens 75-300
    ultrasonic USM seems to have better colour balance, especially with flash -
    sharpness wise both seem pretty similar, but its odd seeing as one lens
    costs four times as much (at least here in the UK)

    I had a 75-300mm for my EOS film camera. I bought the 350D and an L lens.
    The L is far better, in terms of speed of focus, clarity and saturation. So
    much so I sold my original (non L) lenses and bought 3 more. They are
    amazingly good (but heavy and expensive).

    I can't help you with your original question, sorry.
